We know what you're thinking. How can you two time travel? You're both idiots. Well, A) yes we may be idiots, but B) we have no follow up to that because we're idiots. You see, we can't describe it, but we both have the uncanny ability to propel time forward and leave behind entire weeks at a time.
So yes, that's the idiot's way of saying we've both been incredibly busy with things that aren't the blog or writing. Brandon, for example, spent the entire month of April selling his house while simultaneously trying to buy another, in a process that was about as simple and pain free and stress free as an emergency root canal. But on the bright side, he'll soon be moving into a better house.
Bryan, meanwhile, was sentenced to jury duty, and spent hours figuring out how best to get out of it, only to find out they didn't need him.
On top of that, we both have day jobs that keep us super busy. Brandon just inherited his family business, which is booming. And Bryan has the strangest, most interesting job that eventually he'll get to tell you about, but for now just gets to tease. He is the Social Media Manager for an up-and-coming pop star who wants to be the next Britney Spears. So, I'm sorry in advance, because if she does make it, that's partly my fault.
Some of my duties include:
~Managing and promoting her social media accounts
~Shaping her public image
~Proof-reading and tweaking pretty much anything she writes/posts
And yes, she really wants to be the new Britney Spears. That means, of course, that I'm working equally hard to make sure she doesn't become this Britney Spears.
Or this Britney Spears.
And all of that doesn't even include our writing.
Together (and outside of adult responsibilities), the two of us have been working on a few cool new things here and there, but we have not been writing nearly as much as we've wanted to. Part of that was waiting way too long for a response on our current novel, which we wanted to try getting published traditionally.
We'll spare you the details, but we had to fire our agent. In fact, because of it she's actually decided to no longer be an agent at all. We fired her that hard. If you've been following us for a while, you'll know this isn't the first agent we've fired. But we don't wish anything bad upon her, and we wish her well in whatever she does next with her life.
It's not all bad, though. That means we can get back to doing what we want to do, on our terms. It also means that Brandon put together this killer cover, and we're happy to announce that our next novel, Tuck Watley: Freedom Fighter Fighter will be released on May 16th so his hilariously awesome story can stop gathering dust in a drawer.
Tag line: a lowly government phone tapper must infringe the rights of everyone around him to protect us all... from ourselves.
So... that's what we've been up to. What the hell have you been up to?
Cheers and stay busy, friends,
